    Looking at going on a holiday to Japan for 10 days in January so I can see the Tokyo Auto Salon but am unsure about where to stay while over there. Only want to be about 2 hours away from where it's held but still close to Tokyo city. Looking at paying around $180 a night.

    Also how much would an interpreter be?

    Any input appreciated guys

    i have been, it is very good.

    just remember tho, japan isnt how everyone expects it to turn out.
    chances are you wont get a jap girl (and if you do her family wont like you), you wont see hot cars left right and center, and you will be treated like an outsider.

    koreans and chinese do not have very good rights in japan. let alone viets or aussies etc

    even a japanese who has left japan for a long period of time (like a year) oftenly will be looked down apon and people expect they can not speak japanese anymore. as far as language goes, japanese will be highly impressed if you can say 3 words in nihongo, because japanese people feel only japanese are able to speak nihongo, so are amazed if a non japanese can say 3 or so words.

    everyone will go ahead and tell me how wrong i am and how japan loves forigners etc, but a true japanese will not.

    i downloaded a game for my nintendo ds and have been learning japanese every night for a while now, have a friend over from japan who i hang out with at the moment and he is going to take me under his wing over there for a few months next year sometime,

    will have to save up cause i want to have a shitter keto or hachi over there for at least 2 months.

    the jap dollar is going to get pretty bad in the comming months i rekon, be interesting to see how it effects stuff.

    but to answer op question, no idea matey, when i go im going to just wing it.

    if your not a citizen of japan, you are a dog there. you also have the exact same rights as a dog.

    the reason japan as a country is doing well (on the whole) is that they control there economy very well unlike australia.

    immigration and employment is very hard for forigners, as is owning property and posessions. in australia its so easy, citizenships are even handed to sudanese etc black muslims, even centerlink payments for them... then as a majority of them, its not enough and they go stab people and steal skylines etc. its things like this that is destroying our country.

    japan will survive a long time as a pure country.... japan has done very well, and will do very well.

    "Tony Kim" you're a racist, under informed fuck.. There's far deeper issues at play.
    Cbf arguing any of those ridiculous things.
    OP you'll have a crazy time over there. I went, never learnt Jap, stepped of the plan by myself, had an absolute blast.
    Btw Japan, as are many other countries, are party to various international Human Rights treaties etc, so you will be treated well AND have greater legal rights than a dog. So, OP never fear, it should be a great trip.
